    The new one is VVT so it wont be a straight swap. I'd keep to what you got mate TBH.

    Vehicle : VXR8 6.0 muscle SRI ESTATE XP1

    Trim : VXR/ SRI ESTATE CDTI XP1

    Engine : 6.0 V8 Thunder

    Year : 2008

    Default

    you could swap the engines which i think is a straight swap but its the electronics you would have to worry about you would need the ecu the keys the immob chips etc etc
    VXR IS FOR LIFE NOT JUST FOR THRILLS !

    It would be easier and cheaper if you bought your original mate the Z18XE

    You would need to tech 2 everything as well and with the XE being a half can and the XEL being Full Can you may run into bigger problems. Dont get me wrong, it Danboy can drop a 2.0T into his Z18XE car then I'm sure you can drop in a XEL but it expensive and a lot of work.

    z18xe is a normal 1.8 but the z18xer has varible geometry cams so you will need loom ecu and everything and it only gains 15-20 hp. don't bother normal z18xe
